Are You Fulfilling the Desire that Will Give Your Life the Most Meaning?

Are You Fulfilling the Desire that Will Give Your Life the Most Meaning?

Introducing the Pyramid of Your Desires

A pyramid of souls exists, based on the desire to receive. At the base of the pyramid are many souls with small, earthly desires, looking for a comfortable life in an animal-like manner: their focus is food, sex, and sleep. The next layer comprises fewer souls, those with the urge to acquire wealth. These are people who are willing to invest their entire lives in making money and who sacrifice themselves for the sake of being rich. Next are those who will do anything to control others, to govern and reach positions of power. An even greater desire, felt by even fewer souls, is for knowledge; these are scientists and academics, people who spend their lives engaged in discovering some- thing specific. They are interested in nothing but their all-important discovery. Located at the zenith of the pyramid is the strongest desire, developed by only a small number of souls, for the attainment of the spiritual world.


How to Enlarge the Importance of Your Best Desire

We all have this pyramid of desires within us, which we must turn upside-down so that the sheer weight of the top will compel us to aim for the purest desire, the infinite desire for truth. We must reject and discard all our earthly, egoistic desires and put every effort and energy into increasing the desire for spirituality. This is achieved through the proper way of studying.

When people truly wish to increase their longing for spirituality, then the light around them, the spiritual world hidden from them, starts to reflect back on them, making them long for it even more. At this stage, group study under a Kabbalist’s guidance is crucial. A major change in the souls descending today is that they have a definite desire to achieve spirituality. Even ordinary people are seeking something spiritual, something beyond our world.


Today the Desire for Spirituality Is Gaining Significance Globally

Although this “spirituality” may include all sorts of shortcuts, magic tricks, esoteric teachings, and groups promising answers to those who join them, nevertheless, it bespeaks the search for a different reality. If a generation displays a stronger desire within the souls themselves, a new method, suited to those souls, will emerge. In the last fifteen years there has been swift and active development in the descent of new souls. The desire of these souls is much stronger and more genuine than the desire of any previous generation. They are directed at achieving the real truth and nothing else.


Why Your Desire for Spirituality Is So Important

When we truly comprehend how reality applies to us and how we are affected by it, we will cease doing that which is prohibited; we will insist on the right thing, and we will do it. Then we will discover harmony between the real world and ourselves.

In the meantime, we unconsciously err, and then realize we have erred. It may appear that no escape is possible. Humankind finds itself more and more in a blind alley, mired in increasingly difficult dilemmas. We will discover that there is no alternative to recognizing the spiritual world of which we are a part. This recognition will lead us to a new state of being in which we will consciously begin to act as one collective body and not just as individuals.

All people are connected to one another, from one generation of souls to the next. We all share a collective responsibility. That is why the Kabbalists are regarded as “founders of the world.” They influence the entire world, and the world influences them.
